Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Track fast-moving subjects and enjoy enhanced resolution with the upgraded 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens from Sony. The standard telephoto zoom for professionals, this full-frame A-mount lens delivers exceptional quality and offers a fast and constant f/2.8 aperture for consistent exposures throughout the range. Further enhancing overall quality is the use of four extra-low dispersion elements to combat aberrations along with a Nano AR coating for limiting flare and increasing contrast. Also, it has a nine-blade circular diaphragm to help create smooth bokeh.

As a long lens commonly used for action and sports photography, this 70-200mm is equipped with a variety of tactile controls for more intuitive operation while shooting. This includes a Super Sonic wave AF Motor with a new LSI drive circuit for a 4x boost to tracking performance as well as an internal focus design that ensures the overall length does not change during use. Along with this, there are three focus holds buttons as well as an electronic focus range limiter switch for more precise focusing operation. Additionally, the lens is dust and moisture resistant and comes with a removable, rotating tripod collar.

This version II lens has been improved over its predecessor with enhanced reproduction of fine details across the frame and faster, more responsive focusing.
Designed for full-frame A-mount cameras, this 70-200mm zoom covers a versatile telephoto zoom range that is ideal for portraits, action, sports, and more. Also, it can be used on APS-C format cameras where it will provide a 105-300mm equivalent zoom range.
A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also lends greater control over focus position for shallow depth of field techniques.
Four extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
An SSM autofocus system with an enhanced algorithm and new LSI drive circuit provides quick, quiet, and precise focusing and much more responsive performance in tracking modes. The lens also features an internal focusing design that keeps the overall size constant and helps achieve a minimum focus distance of 3.9'.
An electronic focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between a set limited range or full for improving focus speed, and three focus hold buttons are also featured to manually stop the autofocus at a specified point.
Dust and weather-sealed construction benefits using the lens in inclement shooting conditions.
The lens is equipped with a removable and rotating tripod collar for added stability and reducing strain on the camera's lens mount.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
The included lens hood features a filter access window for making adjustments to rotating filters.
This lens is compatible with Sony's 1.4x and 2x teleconverters which can increase the effective focal length to 98-280mm and 140-400mm, respectively.

Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM II Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, but expensive I still don't understand why this lens costs almost 50% more than the version I 70-200 G did, but I've gotten some excellent photographs with it indoors in low light. Focusing on dancers in low light with my a99 has not been a problem. I just wish it cost less. When possible I use primes for indoors/low light situations, but if I need to be able to zoom I use this on one body and a 24-70 f/2.8 on another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lens Sony A99 shooter with all Zeiss glass 135mm f1.8, 85mm f1.4, 24-70mm f2.8......this lens is way better than I thought it would be.Image quality is amazing! Build quality is great! Worth the money! You get what you pay for.
